i can ever get it to install i get a error code 646
I think you are facing issue with Installing this update. I would suggest you posting your install question at following Fourm
Several of our Word-Tools crash because of this patch.
All of our DOTM-tools having selectboxes (which are filled with data at start time) in the templates crash at start / at creating new document. But already created DOCX-douments based on the templates that crash by creating new documents run fine (also the selectboxes getting the code from the same DOTM work as they should). We can provide you with code examples if this helps.
Please release a new patch asap, we and our customers (not small-caps!) are definitely in trouble!
You are correct. This issue only happens when creating new documents based on template which has ActiveX control.
We are actively working to get fix this issue.
Thanks for trying hard :-) Do you keep this site posted when the issue is fixed?
I will update this post once the fix is out.
Do you have any information about when this will approx. be released? I spoke to the IT dept. of one of our customers today and they have been told that the release will only be distributed in december. This would give us HUGE problems, customers cannot work without our apps for a long time!
Maybe there aer plans for a private release very early, next 1-2 weeks?
If you need more information regarding this issue, Please contact Microsoft Support.
Also uninstalling security updates is not recommended by Microsoft, we uninstalled KB 2251419 and the problem was resolved. Whatever potential security issue is fixed by this update is far less important to our customer than their business workflow.
I meant to say "Although uninstalling security updates is not recommended by Microsoft..."
How do I contact Microsoft about getting the fix for this issue? We have a large number of customers affected by this.
I don't have credits to contact Microsoft Support (cost for support request in Europe would be $500.--) but I need this fix so much. Can you please provide a link where I can download it?
